Chefs Hands Project

29 April - 31 May 2019

“Most chefs have gone through a long road to get to where they are now. And usually, it is their hands that show just how challenging this road has been. I have been working on a series of photographs where my aim is to take a close look at the hands of my chef friends and acquaintances, and shine a light on how real, beautiful, scarred, vulnerable and strong they are. Each image will hopefully reveal a part of their personality, and engage visually in the conversation around strain on mental health in the restaurant world.” – Joakim Blockstrom

The Chefs’ Hands project is collaborating with the soon-to-be-launched Pilot Light campaign started by chefs Andrew Clarke and Doug Sanham.

Pilot Light is committed to tackling the stigma and discrimination associated with mental health in kitchens.
